Inaugural Donor Appreciation Dinner

Thursday, February 24, 2022

Our first Donor Appreciation Dinner was a wonderful success and it allowed us to share the incredible impact you all have on the Foundation with your investment in research. To those who could attend – we enjoyed having you and for those who were unable to attend, plans are already in motion for next year’s event in April.

A highlight of the event was when two of our past Research Fellowship Award winners gave speeches:

  • Dr. Lipika Goyal gave a wonderful speech on how winning a Research Fellowship Award changed her life because it not only inspired her to become more involved in research but led her to apply for additional grants resulting in several million dollars being invested in finding better treatments for cholangiocarcinoma.
  • Dr. Flavio Rocha was the first recipient of a Research Fellowship Award and told us that winning this grant altered the course of his career path. His journey after the award has led him to become an Associate Professor of Surgery, division of Surgical Oncology, School of Medicine, and the Hedinger Chair and Division Head, Surgery, Division of Surgical Oncology, School of Medicine at the Oregon Health & Science University.

Thank you again for all you do to support the Foundation and our efforts to help patients by advancing research into new treatments.
